Does playing games in open source console emulators antithetical to keeping one's system as Free as possible?

While the games themselves might be proprietary, it's certainly better than playing them on the original console. In purely practical terms, freedoms 0 and 1 are both satisfied: the game can be run anywhere for any purpose in an emulator, and they can even be modified and studied using GameShark/ActionReplay/etc codes and in-emulator debuggers and such. Technically speaking, even freedoms 2 and 3 are feasible with game ROMs/ISOs :blobcatpirate: .

And yet to me it still feels sort of... wrong. But maybe I'm just being silly. Any thoughts on this?

J. R. R. Tolkien: "Imagine how wonderful it would be to live in a world full of dragons, magic, and lots of war!"

G. R. R. Martin: "Oh ya Tolkien? You think it's so wonderful? What if innocent people in dragon-magic world had to endure my violent and boring white-dude power fantasies? That's real life."

A. No. R. Mal Person: "I hate both of you shitty nerds."

@Shrigglepuss Yeah a lot of the fediverse is what you make of it since there's no algorithms giving you a hand.

It's all on the people and that can be a little bit daunting. I'm so coddled by the algorithms and megasites having all the interest groups in one place, so I sometimes feel like I'm falling behind on fedi.

The real problem is that to make connections and keep them on fedi you have to find them by yourself and work on them. It's a different, harder experience but it's more rewarding in the end.

visions of trapping inside...
therefore Could this be a trapping inside?
